Ever thought about earning extra income from your holiday accommodation option or holiday destination ? Read more to find out how it works.
Holiday QLD is offering FREE membership for hosts wanting to share their piece of Queensland Paradise.
Holiday QLD was inspired by the frustration of having to search more than a dozen websites to explore everything a region has to offer. Here you can choose where to go, where to stay, how to get there and what to do while you’re there, all in one place.
Made by Queenslanders, Holiday QLD is proud to be showcasing everything great about Queensland all in one place. Whilst we may not be the first and won’t be the last, the peer-to-peer market is now more popular than ever when it comes to holidays and weekend getaways. Peer-to-peer offers the advantage of unique experiences and secluded options that are normally not available through mainstream channels or out of reach to the majority.
Holiday QLD is on a mission to assemble the largest selection of Queensland holiday and short stay options all in one place. Join our team as a host and together we can be part of Queensland’s future and the road to recovery.
Over 20 million tourists visit here each year and with international travel being restricted, Australians are choosing to holiday at home, flocking to Queensland and enjoying all we have to offer.
Built on sharing Holiday QLD offers hosts the opportunity to share their piece of Queensland paradise with guests.

Holiday QLD helps make sharing easy, enjoyable and safe. We verify personal profiles and listings, maintain a messaging system so hosts and guests can communicate with certainty, and manage a trusted platform to collect and transfer payments.
Always pay and communicate directly through the Holiday QLD website or app. As long as you stay on Holiday QLD throughout the entire process from communication, to booking, to payment you’re protected by our multi-layer protection strategy.
Everyone on Holiday QLD has a profile to help guests and hosts get to know each other. To book or host, you’ll be asked to provide Holiday QLD with your full name, date of birth, phone number, payment information and email address.
Our secure messaging tool lets you get to know a host or guest and ask questions about a listing or experience ahead of time. After the reservation is booked, you can use it to easily message back and forth to co-ordinate things like check-in and directions.
Payment Terms & Conditions
Payments are accepted from guests and secured at the time of booking. The payment will be transferred to you within 3 working days of the booking either by PayPal or direct deposit via Stripe. You are responsible for processing refunds should that be required. These providers may charge a small transaction fee and this will be deducted from the total booking fee.
Holiday QLD charges commission based on the total booking price and is relative to the chosen membership level. Commission is not added to the total booking price which provides guests with certainty that the advertised price is the price they will pay (no hidden fees or charges).
Our commission is calculated at the time of booking and is visible in your host dashboard along with your earnings. Commission is paid to Holiday QLD at the same time the host receives payment.
